Full Plate Thursday Background Story
When we were young and just starting out in life sometimes we did not have a lot of money. Most of our friends were having to stretch the dollars at the end of the month just like us. My girlfriends and I decided that we would pool our food for some of the evening meals right before payday... the last week of the month. I have some of the fondest memories from those days. We would all bring our food together and we had some great food and great fellowship. We would get the food on the table and everything ready, someone would bless the food and then the hostess would say "come fill your plate".
I have just a few suggestions before you leave your dish and fill your plate.
  • Link directly to YOUR RECIPE and not to your web page 
  • Scroll down to the button that says "click here to enter"
  • You will be asked to give your URL ( which will be your direct link to your post), the name of your recipe, and your email which we will not be able to see.
  • Then you will be asked to select a thumbnail from your post that will be uploaded to your entry.
  • Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday, somewhere on your post. We will give you a gentle reminder if you forget...
  • Please leave me a comment before you leave the page and let me know that you are here, I want to be a good hostess.
  • Don't forget to visit with all the others, after all that is part of the fellowship that makes it so much fun, in addition to all the good food of course...
  • Grab The Full Plate Button if you like and take it home with you.
  • Now God Bless you and your food and everyone fill your plate!

    Also this week, I'm doing a giveaway for the Table for Two cookbook and I'd love if you entered!

  3. Hi Miz Helen. I'm so excited you shared my tea eggs! :)

    This week I am sharing falafel. I had never made them before and was pretty happy with the outcome.

  4. I shared two recipes again this week. Thanks for hosting!

  5. Thanks so much for hosting, Miz Helen! I've brought my spur of the moment Spring Salad to the table today. I hope you enjoy it. I visited you earlier this afternoon and tried to leave a comment on your Sweet Potato Salad and I had some computer problems. I did manage to email the recipe to myself before my computer started acting up. That's a delicious salad that you shared. I'm going to make it to take to my granddaughter's first birthday party. They are having a barbecue. It should be well received. Thanks so much! Candace

  6. Thanks for visiting. I hope you get a chance to make the ANZAC Biscuits. And thank you for hosting!

  11. Good Morning Miz Helen!
    I shared my Slow Cooked Golden Mushroom Beef this week. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

  12. Hi Miz Helen,

    Here I am with another plate of cookies, this time they're Peanut Butter with Cashews -- sweet, chewy, with a little crunch. There's some healthy stuff in there, too, with some whole grain and high protein flours along with the nuts and eggs (also GF and CF).

    Your menu from last week is drawing me right to those Caramel Banana Crepes, followed closely by the French Rack of Lamb. This week already looks wonderful, too!

    Thanks for having us!

  13. Hello Miz Helen, stopping by with some delicious bread. Have a great day!

  14. Hi Miz Helen! Thank you once again for hosting! I am sharing my recipe for a delicious healthy homemade hummus. It is super easy to make and is much more frugal than store-bought hummus.
